Blessings In The Garden
                                      by: B Marie Jarreau

*Sun’s Kiss*
A sunbeam came streaming
Lilac Ladies by BMJ
   Through the clouds.
        She dances
        Touching petunias and
             Kissing pretty roses,

         Coaching stems to reach and rise  
    And blossom toward the skies -
                All this to the pleasure
                              Of a gardener’s
                                     Eyes.

* Gribble – Grubble*
      Gribbly, grubbly
                    Grainy sand.
                    A loam of earthy,
                                deep, dark soil.
                                  It’s nature’s
                                           nursing,
                                                         nesting hand
                                                             Let's grow something!

*Sunday Morning Garden Shower*
                    Listen;
            It’s water falling
                From the sky,
          Reaching for the rivers
                      they
                 Run down,
                     Again,
                       and
                     Again
           Drip, drop, droplets:
                     Rain.

*Leaflets from Above*
Lumps of lemon yellow,
Bushels of bronze and browns,
Tans and reds and orange, too
And a leafy handful of gold.
Leaflets leave
their now bare trees
And once again
the Autumn story’s told.

*Last of the Fallen Leaves*
Four leaf,
Three leaf,
Two leaf,
One:
Last one down
Gets to bask on top in the
Soft, gold
             Autumn sun.
